The Go-Betweens, 16 Lovers Lane

A Brisbane band whose reach proved limitless, The Go-Betweens formed the musical backdrop to countless Australian lives. Their 1988 release 16 Lovers Lane is recognised as one of the finest Australian albums of all time and has a devoted international following. The apotheosis of founders Grant McLennan and Robert Forster’s long-term collaboration, it was also the final release before the band dissolved.

Now, three decades after its release, three of the album’s creators—Lindy Morrison, Amanda Brown and John Willsteed—are joined by Dan Kelly, Danny Widdicombe, Luke Peacock and special guest artists from across the spectrum of Australia’s music scene to recreate the songs and sounds that place this iconic album at the heart of a generation.
